We can change the way you experience food by temporarily taking away your ability to see the food you are eating.
We all look at our food before we eat it, that’s normal right? But what if we didn’t? What if we take away your ability to see the food that you are about to eat, and allow your other senses an opportunity to show you the wonders of the incredible food we create? What actually happens when you close your eyes?
Sight is your most superior of the five senses, and although each sense has its own receptors, the pathways that your senses use to communicate with your brain will be biased towards sight. This bias leaves only a small network of pathways available for the remaining four senses. Removing sight from the equation will allow your sense of smell, your sense of taste, your sense of hearing, and your sense of touch to heighten and have more opportunity to carry information to the brain – essentially allowing you to experience the food in a way that you might never have before.
With this unique dining experience that we offer, we focus on your ability to touch, to smell, and to taste. When smell and taste work together, we get what is called the sensation of flavours. When visual inputs are suppressed you allow the brain to be more creative and imaginative while using your sense of smell and taste, thus heightening your sensation of flavour. The interaction between smell and taste enhance your perception of the foods you eat.
How do we stimulate your imagination?
The answer to this is simple, we close your eyes, open your mind, and allow you to touch, smell, and taste the food we create.
By blindfolding you, we allow you to be more creative and imagine where you are and the journey that the food is taking you on, through smell, touch and taste.
Our featured dish for this experience is Prawn Toast. It has been plated on a bare but rich rock which lies on a bed of locally foraged seaweed for an element of smell. We poured wine for the client for an element of moving water.
Source Food has mastered the ability to stimulate your imagination, as well as your clients’ imagination.
When you close your eyes, how much more do you smell, or hear, or even feel? Now imagine we incorporate a simple inspiration word like ‘ocean’ or ‘sea’, think of what you would be able to smell, hear, feel, or even taste.
Through food, we can create a bespoke dining experience that showcases your brand and what it stands for. Although this dining experience has been created to represent the ‘ocean’, our dining experiences can be tailored to your unique requirements.
We will work with you from concept to conclusion to create an experience that encourages sharing and promotion through digital media.
Let us change how you experience food.
